    Never takes long for the alt-right to come up with crazy conspiracy theories for disasters, so of course they're blaming Antifa for the train derailment in Washington state without a shred of evidence. Gateway Pundit, Alex Jones, et al.

    “It’s a shame to see trees being literally made uninhabitable to birds.”

    People were doing a similar thing to their docks to keep seals off them. Seals were getting severely hurt jumping up on to beds of nails.

    The idiot who spews the idiocy?

    "DIY gene therapy" - the very idea of it makes we want to put it in this thread.

    But this article is actually fascinating, as well as wacky. I don't think this guy is an idiot, but I can't say I would ever do what he's doing, or think it would be a good idea for the vast majority of people out there.

    That is so fucked up. These idiots didn't figure out that the seals can't see the nails until it's too late?? At least with the trees the birds have a clear view of what they're landing on and choose not to. I would have thought doing that to docks would actually be illegal because it endangers wildlife. No?

    "raw" water... :lol:

    Leave it to Silicon Valley to come up with this shit.  

    I'm almost embarrassed to admit I grew up in that part of the world only it wasn't inhabited by people so out of touch with the real world back then-- and there actually were parts of the coast range between the valley and the ocean where you could drink water out of streams and not get sick.  Today?  No freakin' way!

    Motivation was food. They don't see humans as humans. They observe us as benefactors but will turn one us if the need to survive. Much like my liltle kitty... thankfully I outweigh her by a couple hundred pounds and don't live by a wharf

    Yeah, good on him... pretty sure it was her grandfather though, if memory serves, not a stranger, so his reaction is pretty much a given I guess. I like to assume that her mom (or dad, if he was there) would have done it if Grandpa hadn't reacted first.
